on that last good friday nine astronomers gathered for the last time for the dreaded 11 am rapid fire discussion session in the Founder’s Room at the Kavli Institute
there were six degenerate faculty types
two post-AGB hot stars headed for the cooling sequence of the tenure track
and one lone sub-giant, fresh off the graduate main sequence…
we chatted a bit about Pismis 24
it is a very nice cluster
then, just as we were about to pack it up and go to lunch early,
Glenn brought up SN
ok, he had an idea,
ok, it was kinda an interesting idea,
ok, so some of us couldn’t resist asking questions
ok, so we were late for lunch
but now we are really definitely done, after one last grab for cookies friday at 3:15
the Program on Formation and Evolution of Globular Clusters is over!
we thank the organisers !!!
Goldie, in case you didn’t know, was our “rationality token” – the premise that only one person can speak calmly and in a reasoned manner at time.
It works, try it.
If you spoke out of turn, Alison, or her delegate, would bean you with Goldie…
It worked really well.
I miss Goldie.
I am now the last astronomer standing.
I still have the best office around, and ceased being a program member and became a general member of KITP sometime late friday.
Oh, that probably means I have to go to more string theory talks…
The Quantum Control program is starting soon, should be a laugh.
